Well, here is the rumor alluded to in the comments section by one of our readers, ALWAYSBCLOSING. Boston reportedly offered Rondo and Allen in exchange for Hamilton, Stuckey, and Prince. As I said before, if I were Joe Dumars and I received this offer I would have laughed in the face of the offeror. That's probably why, according to the report, Boston had a lower executive pitch the trade to the Pistons, to save Ainge the embarrassment of being laughed at. In all seriousness, giving up three of its best players for an expiring contract in Allen and a young Rondo just wasn't worth it in the Pistons opinion. The trade would have Prince going for virtually nothing in return. Feel free to share your thoughts on the matter, though.
